THE ARTS: PRE SCHOOL - 12TH GRADE
Our visual arts and music program is essential to cultivating technical, intellectual and creative expression.
Student artists in the visual arts program explore a wide range of mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, and mixed media. Projects foster creative experimentation and challenge students to further their own unique vision and style working individually and in groups.
"The artist is not a special kind of person;
rather each person is a special kind of artist"
THE ANNUAL ISN ART FAIR AND WORKSHOP
All classes participate in the annual art fair and work together in preparation for the artistic show and workshop. Last year, students applied a wide variety of techniques such as watercolor, acrylic paint, papier maché, mosaic and assemblage to explore the main theme of KINDNESS. Teachers and parents who saw the artworks were very enthusiastic and the students took great pride in their work. The final result was not only beautiful to see, but everyone was touched by the students' use of symbolic shapes and forms as expressions of kindness and caring.
ISN MUSIC EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM
This year, ISN has partnered with an external Music consultant by the name of CISAR, for an exciting Music project coined CEM (Communication, Emotion, and Music). This project compliments ISN’s culture to nurture “the whole child”. Therefore not only do we introduce music from an artistic standpoint but we also emphasize the social, emotional, and communicative aspects of music.
